A black Labrador retriever named Denver poses in Fred Levy's studio in Maynard, Massachusetts. Levy, a pet photographer, first heard about “Black Dog Syndrome” in a 2013 conversation at a dog park. It’s a disputed theory that black dogs are the last to get adopted at shelters, perhaps because of superstition or a perception that they’re aggressive. The idea inspired Levy to take up a photo project on their behalf.
My old Black Lab was adopted from a local dogs' home and he was the most gentle creature imaginable.

Labs don't care what color they are... or even if one their parents was French.

They're friendly dogs despite their tendencies to please humans.

Never heard that about dogs but often about black shelter cats.

But so many phases pop into mind with that.

... like the Army's: " Be All That You Can Be "

Now she'll just have to settle being white.

He was a good friend as well. His bed was next door to the bookcase and when he wanted to shift his position, he'd put a back foot 'overboard' and push away until he was comfortable.
The bookcase still bears the scratch marks in his memory.

Dogs in 18th century Virginia.

Quote:
The name of Glasgow's owner is forgotten, but for his return, twenty shillings was offered, a sum that underscored his master's attachment. It was not so substantial a reward, however, as the $20 posted in 1777 for a pet Pomeranian called Spado. Spado's notice, inserted by Williamsburg's William Finnie, said the shaggy little black canine had been spotted in the possession of a man who called himself Joseph Block, but "belongs to our brave but unfortunate general LEE." The general in question may have been Charles Lee, a gentleman seldom seen without his dogs, who was captured by the British in 1776. Perhaps more typical is a 1752 advertisement for Ball, a reddish spaniel missed by owner James Spiers, who was willing to part with a dollar to get him back.

Looks like a Samoyed. My buddy had one that would get so exited it would piss on the floor every time he came home from work.

Meet Glenn and Buzz, two dogs with a very special relationship.
Buzz, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, is Glenn’s very own ‘guide dog’. He has been seen leading Glenn while on walks, helping him find his food and assisting him getting into bed.



The pair were recently found abandoned in a sea tunnel in Hartlepool, County Durham, and were rescued by Stray Aid, a rehoming centre for dogs in Coxhoe.

The dogs are believed to be roughly 10 years old and it is thought they were abandoned because of their age and Glenn’s vision problems.

Hannah Critchlow, a Stray Aid volunteer, told ABC News: “They instantly had a bond when they came in, so we kept them together. Whenever they're separated they start crying and barking for each other.”

"They have to stay together," she added.
